Being in touch with our emotions and not acting on them is exhausting

It's impossible to experience the weight and not get a little crushed by it. Nor is distraction alone sufficient.

A combination of distraction and acceptance can work well. Distraction can be used intelligently. Taking a few hours off to refuel is different than checking out for weeks. We can also create a private space to voice our emotions. The key is to be able to accept that things are really hard right now. When we do things that make life worth living, it becomes worth living again.
